Vogue Fashion's Night Out (VFNO): A One Night Only Affair

I received an invite to the Vogue Fashion's Night Out (VFNO) but I thought that happened last week so I was surprised to arrive at Westfield Sydney's party ambience last night. Silly me for not getting my head around my social calendar. 

In celebration of this one night only affair, almost all the stores in Queen Victoria Building (QVB) and Westfield Sydney ran sales and some special kind of entertainment for Thursday shoppers. At first, I was overwhelmed by so many people but it turned out to be a fun night.

The reason why we dropped by Westfield was to buy our first ever Nespresso machine.  A party was in full swing at the Nespresso Boutique with people enjoying cocktails and Nespresso coffee. I was a bit worried that we wouldn't be accommodated well by the staff due to many people inside the store but buying last night proved to be a blessing in disguise.

Look at the wall behind the bartenders. It's Aboriginal art made of Nespresso capsules. How very Aussie and very Nespresso! It looks beautiful.

There was a long queue at the counters as lots of Nespresso members were purchasing Nespresso products but it didn't take long for us to be serviced. When we got to the counter, our Nespresso purchases where all ready and in a few minutes we were signed up for the Nespresso Club membership.

We got treated to a Nespresso cocktails and chocolate truffles after that.  It was a great way to be welcomed to the Nespresso Club.  I was so kilig! :) After so many years of waiting for the right machine and the right time to finally buy one, I felt that it was fate that brought us to this one night when Nespresso's having a party at their boutique.

Will share more about our Nespresso machine in a separate entry next week. In the meantime, here are a few more photos from last night.

Legally Blonde (The Musical) which is set to stage in October had a little concert at the QVB. The cast led by Lucy Durack and Rob Mills sang a few songs to the delight of the audience.
Lingerie stores had live mannequins and shoppers were free to take their photos.

While some stores had music DJs, this one fashion store had Brazilian dancers. It was very entertaining.

Here's a short video of their performance:

What we had for dinner: Pad Thai and Vegetable Spring Rolls to share from Thairiffic.

The much-awaited Ladurée is opening at Westfield Sydney SOON. Can't wait!

 Fabulous window displays. This one at Mulberry was my favourite--Mulberry bags made of gold balloons.

What a great and fun VFNO! Hope Westfield Sydney organises something this again.
